Learning Materials

ChemSAR eLearning materials focus on rescue operations in HNS incidents at sea. The materials are aimed at professionals already familiar with SAR operations and procedures, adding an HNS element. The materials are supplementary to already existing SAR material e.g. national guidelines, SAR education and training as well as the International Aeronautical and Maritime Search and Rescue Manual by IMO.

The materials are structured and based on ChemSAR Operational Plan (OP) and Standard Operational Procedures (SOPs), which are to support international SAR operations in cases of maritime HNS incidents in the Baltic Sea Region.  The Materials are divided into separate sections for authorities and seafarers.
